I've attached the image and I am trying to solve angle "A" of a line that's tangent to a circle. Thanks for your help. Last edited by skipjack; August 24th, 2018 at 08:40 AM.

Can you provide a diagram that is easier to see and has each relevant point given a label (such as B, C, D, etc.) for reference?
